Behemoth - Pandemonic Incantations LP (Orange vinyl)
"Diableria (the Great Introduction)" is the name of the short opening of "Pandemonic Incantations" and it belongs to these rare intros that live up to their name. Orchestral opulence and conjuring vocals lead the audience straight to hell before the first regular track breaks loose. The first thing one realizes is that the successor of "Grom" presents a totally different production. Instead of delivering another slightly blurred yet powerful and massive mix, "Pandemonic Incantations" concentrates on sharpness, transparency and surgical preciseness. It is almost impossible to compare the productions of these two works, but both are absolutely convincing. So there is no reason for concern, Behemoth's third full-length sounds neither sterile nor bloodless.
